VS Website Closed



Met deze lichtgewicht plugin kun je je site sluiten op geselecteerde dagen van de week.

Je site is gesloten op de geselecteerde dagen en een landingspagina zal dan getoond worden.

Wanneer te gebruiken:

  • Close webshop during your holiday
  • Close for religious reasons
  • Close for maintenance or under construction

Main difference between this plugin and others is that you can select certain days instead of just close or open your website.

Hoe te gebruiken

After installation go to the settings page. This page is located at Settings > Website closed.

Selecteer de dagen en pas de landing pagina aan die getoond word als de site gesloten is.


Additional styling (CSS) via the Customizer is being ignored when this plugin is active. But you can add custom CSS via plugin settings page.

Zie hiervoor de FAQ.


Translations are not included, but the plugin supports WordPress language packs.

Meer vertalingen zijn welkom!

The translation folder inside this plugin is redundant, but kept for reference.


Zonder de WordPress codex en de hulp van de WordPress community zou ik niet staat geweest zijn om deze plugin te ontwikkelen. Dus hartelijk bedankt!

Geniet er van!

Hoe stel ik de taal van de plugin in?

De plugin gebruikt de taal van de site, ingesteld in Instellingen > Algemeen.

If translations are not available in the selected language, English will be used.

Which timezone does plugin use?

Het gebruikt de tijdzone die ingesteld is bij Instellingen > Algemeen.

Can I preview the landing page before closing website?

Yes, this is possible. Plugin has a preview feature.

Kan ik een site permanent sluiten?

Yes, this is possible. Just select all days and save the page.

Where to find the image ID?

Every image contains an unique ID. You will find this ID when hovering the image title in the media library of your dashboard (list view) or when editing the image.

It’s the number that comes after: post= or item=

Is SEO taken into account?

Yes, when plugin is active it adds a 503 Service Unavailable server error response code. This tells search engines that your site is (temporary) down.

Why is there no semantic versioning?

The version number won’t give you info about the type of update (major, minor, patch). You should check the changelog to see whether or not the update is a major or minor one.

I use this to automatically close our congregational website (fpchurchsantafe.org) on the Lord’s Day. It took me less than 5 minutes to setup and I believe every WordPress website should use it. Kind regards to the author of the plugin!

This plugin just works fantastic, has a clean code, no hidden scripts, and has a very simple user interface. I would recommend this plugin If you are looking for a simple maintenance plugin or if you just want to close your website on a specific day, like Sunday, due to religious reasons. Guido, keep up the good work!
